    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at McKinsey & Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great learning experience for Business Analysts, Associates and Engagement Managers. You'll build skills faster than you can anywhere else. Great colleagues and usually an enjoyable day-to-day atmosphere

    Cons

    Don't believe the recruiting pitch. You won't be saving the world. Chances are you will be helping some bank gouge their customers a little more, or building some IT plan that the client won't ever implement. The partnership (i.e., the people who run the company) is becoming increasingly greedy/self-interested. Extremely conservative culture -- unless you're doing something a bunch of people are already doing, you'll get chewed up and spit out
